The American singer, actress and reality TV star Erika Jayne, famously known for “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, has filed for a divorce from her husband Tom Girardi. On the Wednesday episode of RHOBH, Jayne made some revelations about their wedding on the show with her co-stars.
As told by Jayne, she wasn’t happy in her marriage and was planning on filing for a divorce for a while now. Jayne told, “My life drastically changed this week… I let go of my Lamborghini, I let go of my 16,000 square foot home, I let go of my marriage, I let go of everything. I literally made a decision that I had to,”
Jayne had filed for divorce from her estranged husband Tom Girardi in November 2020. The two had been married for 21 years.
However, shining the light on her decision of getting divorce, Jayne said in the confessional, “I left because he pushed me further and further out.” She told, “The conversations that I used to have were now reduced down to a sentence or two. I just kept walking around that house and knowing that this marriage was headed down a really s—ty path. I had to make a choice to do what was right for me. I couldn’t live that way anymore.”
Apparently, no other cast member knew about Jayne’s story and she was trying to protect them from the controversy. Telling the co-cast why she didn’t tell them, Jayne told, “It would put you in a bad position to give you information that you had to hold,”
Jayne explained to her co-stars, “It also doesn’t serve me to talk a lot about what is happening legally — or will happen legally — because I am married to somebody who is very good in that area. … I thought about this and tried and tried and tried to talk and tried to work it out and I was met with such resistance. Such resistance. I can’t do this by myself. I can’t convince someone of anything and so I said, ‘OK, well I have to take this step on my own.’”
On the other hand, the other members of RHOBH supported the singer and found her sincere.
